corridor. the team finally rescued nearly 24 hours later. and guys, we're back out here live in buffalo, this snow is coming down at rates would you not believe. probably four inches an hour or more. and it is just piling up so fast they have nowhere to put it. the plows have been coming by, trying to get rid of it and then the huge dump trucks come, load it in the dump truck and they're taking it off. because there's just nowhere for it to go. yesterday we were out talking to residents they're comparing this to the blizzard of '77. they say they've never seen anything like it it's unbelievable how localized this is. you have a ten-mile swath of the snow. on the other side -- nothing. you have green grass. and so in a matter of about three miles you go from nothing to about 50 inches of snow. this is something that even people from buffalo can't even believe. and guys, unfortunately this has
3:03 am
been deadly and this is just the first wave. this is expected to die down late they are morning, more expected to come tonight through tomorrow. back to you. >> my goodness, jennifer gray, we see a truck behind you, i'm sure you can't even feel your face as you're talking to me, i'm trying to get a better perspective. i don't know who your photographer is i don't know if we can take the camera off the sticks, i would love to see if you could tilt down to see how deep the snow is where you're standing. >> yeah, we'll try, we keep losing shot a little bit. jonathan -- >> don't do it. >> maybe for the next one we'll try to get it going. >> it's obvious coming down. there's big local advisories, if can you get out of your house to walk to check on neighbors, elderly, those who may be challenged in situations like this, do it you guys, be careful up there. i know you're covering the story, but stay warm as well, all right? >> thank you, jennifer. and to the crew and of
3:04 am
course to sometimes you know when you're standing in the thick of it you want to see how deep, how nasty the storm is. we have at least some good news to report this morning, south of buffalo you have this women's college basketball team, jennifer mentioned this in her piece, frozen in their tracks no more. so hopefully the frowns will turn into smiles shortly. niagara women's hoops team was stranded on the highway for 26 hours. the good news this morning, we can tell you they've been rescued. a little back-story, they were heading home after a game in pittsburgh when they got stuck. that was around 2:00 a.m. near lackawanna, new york. we have the coach on the phone, the head coach of the niagara university women's basketball team. coach you've been all other twitter, you tweeted you're safe at the toll plaza, are you okay? >> yeah, we are. you know we're all together on the bus and we're about ten minutes from campus and really tired and really excited to be
3:05 am
home. >> how, take me back to the rescue over the course of the last few hours. how did that happen? who was it? >> you know, it was the state troopers as well as some volunteer firefighters. and so it was a little -- we came at about half went in all-terrain vehicles and half went were state troopers. but we're all together now. we had to leave everything on the bus. and but most important thing is we got off and we're out of it. it really, driving, you know, the humvee or whatever, the s.w.a.t. car that we were in that goes through anything, it was, it was really bad, it was really coming down again. and we're just really glad to be together and almost home.
3:06 am
>> i'm sure you are, looking at pictures, people knee-deep, careening over the snow. i can't imagine and a very serious snow, there were i understand little kids on this bus as well. in addition to your team and these young women, how did you pull through with i'm sure dwindling food, water and supplies? >> yeah, you know, the first time that they took by, one of our staff members was a little ill, they took her and my kid, about four, five hours ago. so they took them first and we were going to wait it out. they thought they could get us out. and i said you know, we can make it through the night, but tomorrow morning, if we're not out of here, somebody has to come get us and just completely remove us. because they thought they could dig our bus out to the point where we could drive away. drive up to campus. you know, by this morning. as they got into it, they
3:07 am
realized it wasn't going to happen. they back to rescue us. we had planned on staying through the night. we're just excited to get off and get home. >> coach, at least you all are headed home back to campus, thank you so much, our best to you and the team, appreciate it. that team will never be tighter than i'll tell you if there's one way to get over a loss to pittsburgh -- now that game is way behind them. they just scored a much bigger victory. they made it through this horrible storm. we wish them well. it's so high, so many feet, it's all about the history of it. but it's also about the fact that it's not stopping. and there are people who are in real danger. can we put up some of the pictures of what the practical effect is of this much snow on your home and these are the guys walking in the snow. that's not the most helpful
3:08 am
thing. but we have pictures of what it looks like when you get this much snow outside your house. ind ra, can you call up the pictures for us? >> we're talking about 76 inches of snow. that is the most amount of snow that you have seen in 24 hours anywhere in the united states. and we cannot only be telling thaw with this storm. but we can breaking the record. a lot of people are saying why are we seeing so much snow? it all has to deal how cold the air. keep in mind, one inch of rain, everyone keeps talking about the 15-20 ratio. what makes one inch of rain, if it's cold enough, you times it by 15 and that's how many inches of snow you're talking about. all 50 states somewhere saw a record morning low, a temperature below freezing in all 50 states today, these are your current temperatures, we could see that again. so we're still stuck in the pattern here with these very cool temperatures. in fact we're not just breaking records in the upper midwest,
3:09 am
look at the southeast. we're talking about places like florida, in through alabama, mississippi, even georgia we have broken the record for the morning low. so that's how cold this, how far south the cold is diving. temperatures hovering around freezing, 31 degrees in through new york city. we're talking about temperatures that you typically see in january. the dead of winter, we're seeing them now. pea have not seen temperatures this cool since the middle of november and there's just another wave right after this one, guys, tough to say. >> we'll stay on it, because it's not over. who knows what's happening next. >> it could be the worst ever in 24 hours. >> i worry about the people who have to deal with it. emergency services. a fifth victim of the attack at the synagogue in jerusalem has died of his wounds. palestinian cousins stormed the synagogue with meat cleavers and knives, killing four rabbis. we have attica shuber covering
3:10 am
it live from jerusalem. >> the violence doesn't seem to have happened overnight. it was relatively calm. but even as the city tries to get back to normal life, it's still quite tense. early-morning prayers at the scene of a horrific terror attack at this west jerusalem synagogue. mourners watched in grief as the victims' bodies are carried outside and laid to rest. four rabbis killed, three of them americans with dual citizenship. a police officer was critically wounded during the attack, and later died in hospital. back in the u.s., a vigil in boston for torski. >> i will always remember mosha, his modesty, his brilliance, smile and kindness.
3:11 am
>> relatives remember levine as a gentle man with a calling. >> it's beyond horrific as this is, for kolman to live and die in a land, in jerusalem in prayer, that's the way we would all want it to happen. >> as some mourned, others up in arms, palestinian protesters clashed with israeli security forces in the west bank, who fired tear gas. the attack ratcheting up fears of increasing violence in a city already reeling from weeks of unrest. palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas strongly condemned the attack on civilians. but israeli prime minister, benjamin netenyahu vowing to settle the score with every terrorist, ordering the demolition of the slain attackers' homes in east jerusalem. president obama saying too many have died on both sides. >> i think it's important for both palestinians and israelis to try to work together to lower tensions and to reject violence.
3:12 am
>> but in gaza, celebrations, revelers wielding axes, throwing candy, waving posters of the two palestinian assailants. so far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack. >> part of the ongoing investigation is leading us to believe that the two suspects, the two terrorists worked on their own, that they planned the attack ahead of time. >> now, israeli police have already arrested a number of family members of the two attackers. 13 in all. and they have also said they will demolish the homes of the attackers. as they are doing with other, other attackers that have carried out attacks in the recent weeks. chris? >> atika, thank you very much. we'll all about what happens next. we're hearing about retaliation, that they're going to get even on the israeli side. we're going to have to follow it closely. a lot of other news, let's get to mick. >> good morning, team, how we doing? >> good on a wednesday. >> no snow here. >> we're going to keep watching that situation, because boy oh
3:13 am
boy, this is epic. let's give awe look at the headlines now, republicans vowing a renewed fight this morning after senate democrats block a bill to construct the keystone pipeline by a single vote this vote dealing a sharp blow to louisiana senator mary landrieu who had pinned her re-election on a yes vote. president obama has remained skeptical on the legislation. senate republicans blocked a bill that would rein in nsa surveillance programs. out of the bill which grew out of nsa leaker edward snowden's disclosu disclosures, the government could no longer keep large amount of americans' phone records. the obama administration and technology giants apple, google, microsoft and yahoo all supported the bill. federal regulators are calling for a nationwide recall of vehicles with takata air bags, regulators are demanding
3:14 am
more information from the japanese air bag manufacturer. our rene marsh is looking at it all for us from washington. safety regulators say automakers were unwilling to issue a nationwide recall. does takata have to bow to the regulators' demand? >> it could come down to a court bat toll force takata to comply. we're talking about millions of additional cars being recalled here. so if you drive, and we have them for you here, a ford, a honda, a chrysler, mazda or bmw. manufactured before 2008 you could be impacted. the hinational highway safety administration says that your driver's side air bag may need to be replaced. the agency is still working on defining all of the specific models for those makes involved here. but prior to this, if you remember, nearly eight million cars by ten automakers had been recalled over those defective
3:15 am
air bags. but the recall was limited to hot and humid states. the theory was, that the defect was not triggered unless it was humid. but this all changed when a driver was injured in north carolina, when metal shrapnel shot from his air bag and then regulators said wait a minute, we need to expand the recall nationwide because this is not a problem that's only happening in humid states. it's happening in other places as well. now, michaela, despite what safety regulators said yesterday about thakata's resistance in going along with the nationwide recall, we received a statement from the company that said they're working with authorities to get a little bit more direction and they say they're also working with automakers. michaela? >> rene, we'll stay on the story with you, thank you so much. a u.n. committee has voted to hold north korean leaders accountable for human rights violations. the vote stems from a devastating u.n. report which
3:16 am
details wide-ranging abuses in the country after hearing evidence of torture, political repression and other crimes. the vote of the u.n. recommends a referral to the international criminal court for the possible prosecution of north korean leaders for crimes against humanity. we'll continue on that story as well. >> remember a lot of people had speculated that that threat may have pressured the release of the americans recently. also ahead here, retaliation in the air in the middle east as the prime minister of israel promises to quote-unquote settle the score after the murder of those four rabbis in and a police officer in jerusalem. how will he retaliate? that's one of the questions we're asking this morning. and will it sink the region back into war? we'll talk to george mitchell, the former u.s. special envoy to the middle east coming up. you're watching "new day." in this accident...

(laugh) nice. doing the big things that move an economy. see you tomorrow, mac. see you tomorrow, sam. just another day at norfolk southern.
3:19 am
3:20 am
israel is now vowing to retaliate following that despicable attack on a synagogue that killed four rabbis and a police officer. so what will that mean? and does it doom any chance at peace, at least any time soon? let's bring in somebody with deep perspective on this, george mitchell, the former u.s. special envoy to the middle east and former senate chairman
3:21 am
senator, thank you very much. i good to have you as always, thank you, sir. >> thanks for having me, chris. >> when we look at the situation, it's all about the perspective. i would like to play what president obama said, because it seems very simple, but almost a perfect portrayal of the reality of the situation. may we play it? >> too many israelis have died, too many palestinians have died. and at this difficult time, i think it's important for both palestinians and israelis to try to work together to lower tensions and to reject violence. >> now there's no question that that is very simple, but it is not simplistic. when you boil it all down, despite the ugliness and the horrible violence, at the end of the day, as you know too well from your experience, is it as simple as that? >> well the first thing that must be said of course is that nothing, no grievance justifies brutal murders of the type that occurred there in the synagogue
3:22 am
in west jerusalem. second is of course, that this has a long history, there have been two major violent palestinian uprisings called intifadas in the past several decades, the most recent in the year 2000. both occurred at a time when it appeared that there was no prospect for movement in the peace process negotiations to establish a two-state solution. and i think there's widespread concern, fear even, that there could be another outbreak coming. i think what makes this particularly dangerous, chris, is that the external circumstances, that is the turbulence in the region as a whole, is now unlike anything that occurred, that existed at the time of the two prior intifadas, you have syria, iraq, tremendous difficulties throughout the region. and no one can know, no one can say for sure what might happen if an outbreak triggered by
3:23 am
jerusalem were to occur and how it would interact with other conflicts. the second point that must be made, is that a real danger here is that this involves jerusalem and a very holy site for muslims everywhere. so this is not just palestinians and israelis, it's muslims. there are 1.5 billion muslims in the world today. the number will double over the next several decades and this takes the conflict to i think a different level. so it is very dangerous. i think that heeding the president's words will be difficult for the leaders on both sides. but i think that's what must be done, is somehow try to calm the situation, to reduce the possibility or the likelihood of further acts that would inflame the situation in jerusalem. >> we do know that we're well within the cycle now this was a heinous attack on a holy place, which crosses a second line of
3:24 am
wrongfulness in the eyes of all those involved. now we're hearing strong talk from the prime minister of israel. we know what that means. we know talk is not cheap with the israelis. they act on it and that will continue the cycle of violence. which is why it seems like there has to be something where these two parties can agree. now you raise the aspect of what may be a heightened consideration. do you believe this has gone from a purely political situation, if it ever was one, to one now that is in main part, religious? and do we need religious leaders maybe to come to the fore more than they have in the past? >> that would, of course, be helpful. the conflict has always been in part religious. but it has also been very heavily national identity and territorial dispute. many other factors, economics always underlies conflicts as well. but coming to the forefront, killing of people while in prayer, in a house of prayer, i
3:25 am
think does add a dangerous new element to it. it's not the first time it's occurred on either side. >> do you think imams -- do you think imams and rabbis could create peace in a way that the politicians can not? >> i'm not sure that they could create peace, but they could certainly help to prevent an inflammation or escalation of the conflict. and condemnation of this type of activity by religious leaders everywhere would i think, help, in tamping down what i think could be a very dangerous situation. i emphasize not just for israelis and palestinians, but for the entire region. and if that occurs of course, it affects everyone. >> and obviously that's why as you wrote very eloquently in a three-part series recently, why it is in the u.s.'s interests to help in the region. because if it's not specific to israel and palestine, what will happen in the surrounding regions will certainly compromise u.s. interests.
3:26 am
it's interesting to note for people senator mitchell, you say in 1947 there was a plan laid out for a two-state solution that would be very agreeable to most arab leaders today. and yet sadly, it is off the table for now. thank you very much for your perspective on this and we encourage people to read what you wrote on it. they can find it online at cnn. i'm sure we'll be speaking to you about this more soon. thank you so much. ahead this morning, on "new day," another woman now accusing comedian bill cosby of sexual assault. you recognize her, she's former supermodel janice dickinson. she says the entertainer drugged her and raped her more than three decades ago in a lake tahoe hotel room. more on that, coming up next. cup.) poa ♪ save your coffee from the artificial stuff. switch to truvia. great tasting, zero-calorie sweetness from the stevia leaf.

3:34 am
getting on top of me. >> she says that she never discussed it with bill cosby after that it was never brought up and this morning, marty singer, the attorney for bill cosby is speaking out to the rap. saying that and we have this, her new story claiming that she had been sexually assaulted is a defamatory fabrication. and brooke, what he bases that on is he says he quotes a passage from dickinson's book and also a 2002 interview from the "new york observer" in which she says that cosby blew her off after dinner because she wouldn't have relations with him. >> this is 30 years ago, no charges, these are just stories. jean casarez, thank you so much. coming up, we should mention we're talking with a former prosecutor who wanted to file charges against cosby back in 2005. and a potential rape case, but says he couldn't because of lack of evidence. so we'll have that for you later. meantime to michaela pereira we go. >> good morning, everyone, a few

protest. the question is will they find a solution before the problem gets much worse with an upcoming announcement. let's bring in retired lieutenant-general russell honore. who ran joint task force katrina and in the wake. hurricane he knows how to keep the peace, especially with national guard operations inside and out. very good to have you, general, thank you very much for being with us. let's deal with the obvious, people are saying the governor is saying state of emergency? the governor is saying national guard? this is incendiary. this is provocative. do you see it that way? >> well, i'm not quite sure what option the governor had after that fbi report came out. and i'm sure you've seen it, you reported on it, with the warning to law enforcement across countrying on on things that they should be on the lookout for. it would be hard for the governor not to do something after reading that fbi report. so that concerns me the most.
3:46 am
that being said, i do think the governor and i would recommend to him if i was advising him, to spend more time talking to his people. to make sure that his actions are to insure people's right to assemble number one and the second priority will to be protect people and property in the event people decide to do civil disobedience. which end up being criminal offenses and destroying property or hurting other citizens. >> strong point. it's not just the action, it's the message rand motivation behind it. if the protests get violent we'll be here with these different forces to fight back instead of the protection of property and people who are innocent and the surroundings, do you think that's just style, or is that substance? >> i think it's substance, i think people respond to communications and what the picture look like.
3:47 am
and to this point, the picture continue to look like we're bringing out a big defense force as opposed to bringing out a protection force to protect the people and get those police to start working with the community. better and they have done a reasonable job. thus we haven't seen a whole lot of violence recently. how do you take that and capitalize on it and use the community? now this thing, according to the fbi, maybe go beyond ferguson. this may go into st. louis. it may go into other parts of the country. in major cities and municipalities. the question is, chris, would we be better off with a designated date that the announcement is going to be made as opposed to acting like this is some big suspense? and why do we, why are we waiting in limbo as opposed to coming out with a deliberate date and time, the economy could continue to do what it's going to do, because in certain
3:48 am
cities, this is going to have an economic impact and coming up on the thanksgiving holiday, what are they going to do? >> you raise the right questions, general. and there aren't great answers right now. but certainly anticipation of this event is not making anything better. thank you very much for your perspective. you certainly handled a horrible situation in katrina as best as could be then. hopefully we don't have to see anything like that this time around. thank you, sir. brooke? as we watch and wait to see what happens in ferguson, missouri, let's talk about washington. the senate vote approving the controversial keystone pipeline comes up a vote short. what does that mean for the president? ups is a global company, but most of our employees

3:52 am
senate narrowly voted against the keystone pipeline. it failed by a single vote. it is a bill the president threatened to veto. could have helped this louisiana senator still struggling to keep her job. look at polls, it's an uphill battle against her republican opponent facing runoff. let's turn to cnn political commentator, paul begala and with us, cnn political commentator ben ferguson, host of the ben ferguson show. gentlemen, good morning. paul begala, keystone failed by one vote and hearing from
3:53 am
senator landrieu, she said up until right before the vote she was feeling very comfortable about it. what do you think happened? >> she just couldn't get the last vote. you feel for senator landrieu, she's the chair of the energy committee. the only reason it came to the floor was because democrats love senator landrieu, they want to to see her do well in her runoff, win. so they gave her the vote. but they couldn't quite put it over the top. it flips forward into the new year when the republicans will have more votes presumably, votes for keystone. but then the problem is, can they sustain, override a potential obama veto. >> you're jumping ahead. so you roll paul begala. this is senator landrieu, her speaking just after the vote. take a listen. >> i did not ask harry reid's
3:54 am
permission to do this. and i did not inform mitch mcconnell. i took to the floor of the united states senate and used the power that comes from being a senator representing one of the great states in this nation. to force a debate on an issue that i felt strongly about and they feel strongly about. for many years. >> maybe it's a little bit about playing by the rules. but there's more going on here than that. >> i want to get to veto possibilities and republicans in a second. specifically 0 her race, paul, how do you think that the failure of a vote, how do you think it will affect her run-off chances against her republican opponent bill cassidy? >> it's never good in a run-off to have a headline that says senator fails. at the same time, i don't think it's all that critical in louisiana. at the pipeline goes all the way through to my home state of texas. it's not good. as you pointed out, she's behind in the polls, really difficult. this is not a state that loves president obama frankly and you know, mary landrieu, she was i
3:55 am
think a 42% in the first run, but now it's going to be a one-on-one against bill cassidy, against bill cassidy. republican from louisiana, very tough for her. >> i see this as pretty much politics playing out and see it as kind of a metaphor for a bigger instance of it in immigration, if you're dying to talk about keystone pipeline, i'll keep going with you. >> it's an incredible act of desperation, i would say it's probably going to hurt her even more now that it didn't pass. because it does look so parti n partisan. it looks so desperate and the people in louisiana are going to say where were you with this type of leadership on this issue for the last six years? she wasn't there. so this vote only happened because she was afraid she was going to get fired and be unemployed come january. that's how the voters i think are going to react. >> december 6 is the run-off. we'll see how it plays out politically. i like what you said as a segue into the immigration segment.
3:56 am
let's take out her, replace it with republicans and remove the timing of the last six years and don't you have the situation that you have with immigration? which is, you've had 510 days since the senate passed the last bill. the senate will not have an up or down vote and they're effectively forcing president obama to use executive action and say he better not use executive action, what choice are the republicans giving him? why don't they hold the vote? >> the bill is a bad bill. written bay bunch of people who got kicked out of office in the last election. >> so come up with a better bill. >> i think they're going to. i think what you're going to see is the president of the united states basically say i don't care about the last election. i don't care about what the american people say. i'm going to legislate literally from my office on a massive issue. one of the top three issues of this election and i'm going to do it. that's not what executive action is about. >> it wasn't a top three issue. >> the top three issues -- it was for a lot of the people. >> it was seven. >> and a lot of people who won the election, this was one of
3:57 am
the top three issues, you can't deny it. >> in the cnn/orc poll. it was seven. >> when you look at states where you had tight elections, this was a top issue for voters and for many, they wanted there to be something done outside of amnesty or executive action. and it was a referendum thon policy and this administration. call some democratic senators and that lost and ask them how big of a deal immigration reform and it cost some of them their jobs. >> it was issue seven and we hear, when you look at the "u.s.a. today" poll from this week shows that americans don't want the president to take this up. now they want him to wait until the new congress. here's my thought. i'm quoting michael smerkonish, paul begala, what if the president signs executive action, but doesn't actually implement it we know the republicans want to have the seats in both chambers at the top of the year. what if then they make a potential tweet to whatever the executive action is, and
3:58 am
compromise, possible? >> you don't need all that rigmarole. you just have the regular constitutional order. the congress can act any time it chooses. the republicans have controlled the house of representatives where the bill has been stalled for years. they could have put the bill up. it would have passed, a bipartisan majority for it in the house. that's why speaker boehner won't put it up. there's not a majority of republicans for it. if you add in some democrats, some republicans, you have god forbid, a bipartisan majority for it. that's why speaker boehner won't put it up for a vote. he won't put anything else up for a vote. we do have to do something about this crisis in our country. and presidents reagan and bush issued executive orders on immigration. >> it didn't work well. >> it worked very well. >> same problem now, that's one of the things we learn from our mistakes. >> excuse me for talking while you're interrupting. >> all right, gentlemen, we -- too early to be playing like this. >> that's a good line, begala. you got to give ferguson some room this morning, he was in a
3:59 am
car accidents on the way here, still made it on time. >> you're right. >> he said the guy behind him looked a lot like you, begala, that's all i'm going to say. >> thanks, you guys very much. >> glad to see you're doing well. >> thank you both very much. all right that's one of the stories that's going to keep going on for us this morning. we're following a lot of news, so let's get to it. probably heavier than anything in over 40 years. >> i've never seen it like that. it was scary. >> it's too much, it's really a lot of snow here. >> this is absurd. >> early morning prayers at the scene of a horrific terror attack. >> two suspects, the two terrorists worked on their own. >> the attack ratcheting up fears of increasing violence. >> i think it's important for both palestinians and israelis to stop violence. >> new cell phone video has surfaced and a resident says this is officer darren wilson.
4:00 am
good morning, welcome back to "new day," i'm chris cuomo with brooke baldwin. more than six feet of snow in 24 hours. that is accurate and it could be historic. and unfortunately it is the reality for too many in buffalo this morning. it's, you know, not the numbers, it's about a city that is paralyzed by this. it's about people dying and it's about it not stopping any time soon. >> you have so far, we have an additional death. so five, five deaths being blamed on this historic snowstorm. the national weather service saying during this one stretch up to five inches of snow was falling per hour. five inches per hour, you have snowfall totals that may have eclipsed 76 inches in one day. this is why we keep throwing out the word "historic" because it could be the most snow ever to fall anywhere in a single 24-hour period and it's not over yet. meteorologist jennifer gray braving it for us this morning in buffalo. jennifer? >> talk to me about what you're seeing there. >> yeah, guys, our truck died so
4:01 am
we're actually coming to you through skype. because this is something that you have got to see. we were talking to people here locals, buffalo, they're used to this. but they say this is even something that they have never seen before. they're comparing this to the blizzard of '77 and that should tell awe lot. look around me. i want to start over here, look at the cars, they're completely buried underneath the snow. they just look like little hump there is. our last live shot we did you wouldn't have been able to see these cars, that's how low the visibility was. we have about six inches of snow on the hood of our car in less than an hour, about 30 to 40 minutes, look over here, this is what they're doing with this. they're plowing the streets, piling it up on the side of the streets and you see, it's higher than the street sign right there and i would go over there. but i can't because i'm tethered so i can hear you guys, i can talk to you. and the snow on the ground is piling up. they plowed these roads just since we've been talking to you and you can see. we have about a foot, a foot and
4:02 am
a half of snow buried under here and it just packs in so tight and guys, this is something that is not over yet. we have another wave coming tonight into tomorrow. and unfortunately just as you said, this has become deadly. >> overnight more record-shatters lake-effect snow paralyzing parts of western new york. >> buffalo, now in a state of emergency, as the governor deploys the national guard for help. >> this is a very serious storm. >> up to six feet of snow and climbing, first responders carrying patients to the hospital on foot. the snow so deep in some places, snowmobiles can't operate. >> it's probably heavier than anything that we have seen in over 40 years. >> from the sky, a wall of white. on the ground. >> that is the garage door. >> the snow is piling so high so fast it comes crashing into this home. >> it's horrendous, it really
4:03 am
is. we're going do make history. >> the snowfall up to five inches an hour crippling emergency personnel. at a fire house in the heart of the storm, a mother delivers her baby girl. >> we could not get her to the hospital, she was born, she's safe and she's healthy. >> near buffalo, an 81-year-old man died after first responders were unable to get him to the hospital in time. the man, one of three people dying from cardiac arrest tuesday while shofrling,s residents scrambling to dig themselves out. >> the near whiteout conditions. >> already causing one deadly car accident and leaving the niagara university women's basketball team stranded. along the i-90 corridor. the team finally cress cued nearly 24 hours later. >> hey, guys, in the last ten seconds we just had fire crews come through with snowmobiles, they can't get their trucks out. we had three snowmobiles come through here with some folks. i guess they were out assisting
4:04 am
people. that are stranded on the roads, guys, the snow that's piled up so high, the street signs, we've seen ten to 15 dump trucks, they're putting it in the dump trucks, hauling it off. it's not going to melt before the next wave comes through tonight through tomorrow, guys. >> jennifer gray, thank you so much. you know on that final point of how these emergency crews are having to get creative to try to rescue people, let me bring in by phone buffalo fire commissioner garnell witfield. commissioner, good morning, it sure sounds like you have your work cut out for you. can you just talk to me about obviously the challenges, buffalo, you all know snow, you know how to deal with this. this is something entirely different. how have you been able to get out object the roads to rescue people? >> good morning, it certainly has been very, very challenging. even with our familiar airty with dealing with snow, this has been a storm that is certainly extraordinary. even by our perception. we've again had to be very, very
4:05 am
creative. we've have many times had to carry patients from their homes. out to major thoroughfares to get them you know, transportation to medical facilities. we've had to treat onsite over extended periods of time. we've had to do a number of things that are out of the norm for us. >> can you be specific. tell me one story of something your guys and gals have had to deal with. >> we've will couple of things, we were bless dodd give birth, assist in the birth of a child one of our firehouses last night. >> aww. >> the mother was there over an extended period of time in labor and finally did give birth to a healthy baby girl. so that was, that was something very different for us. that and again, carrying patients from their homes, you know, over blocks. to get them to transportation to the hospital, whatever. a number of things we've had to rescue people.
4:06 am
cars. provide shelter for persons, we have several persons who are bedded down in some of our fire houses. in police stations. so it's certainly been a group effort here in buffalo. >> my goodness, i'm glad to hear mom and baby are doing a-okay and my hat is off to your fire personnel for pulling that off. let me just ask you, i guess for the people who are, we've seen pictures, commissioner of just snow, you know literally trapping people in their homes. you open the front door and you can't even get out. what's your message for those people who appear to be stuck. >> well, we want people to stay off the streets. one of our biggest challenges have been dealing with cars that are stranded. in the thoroughfares, making it very difficult for emergency personnel and others to get down the streets to provide assistance. so we want people to stay in the homes if they can do so safely. if they cannot do that safely. if they have a problem with their heating or whatever, then they certainly should call our
4:07 am
311 or 911 systems and we'll try to get someone to them. we've had issues with persons where their furnace is being blocked and carbon monoxide issues, so we want people to have operational carbon monoxide detectors in their homes, do all the things that they can do to understand and keep their homes safe. >> it's the little things to mean such a big deal. darnell witfield, police commissioner, you have your work cut out for you, stay safe. those guys and women working around the clock when they have their own families, many of whom are being adversely aked by this. so they're helping others, when they're not even sure what's happening at hole. in the middle east there's at best an uneasy calm in jerusalem this morning. israel has promised to retaliate for the attack on a synagogue that's left five dead. a fifth victim succombing to
4:08 am
list injuries this morning. joining news jerusalem is mark regev, spokesman for israeli prime minister benjamin netenyahu. good to see you, sorry it's under these circumstances. let me ask this question with all due respect. i understand the outrage is obvious, that this was uncalled for and there's no justification. however, when there is retaliation for this, whether it's knocking down homes or whatever subsequent actions rail takes, how do you understand the process of finding peace? >> chris, with respect we're not retaliating. we taking steps to protect our people. and to prevent further atrocities like the one we saw yesterday. we've beefed up our police presence in the city, security presence to deter further attacks. we're looking at different ways that we can better protect our people. but we're not talking about retaliation. we're talking about protection and deterrence.
4:09 am
>> because that's a big difference, it's not just language. it winds up being what motivates the next cycle. and you've consistently said on this show, consistently, the goal is to get past this and towards a more peaceful process. where do you see that chance here? >> well i think we have to look at what happened yesterday. that brutal massacre in the house of worship. and we have to see it as a defining moment. and we see people across the planet, president obama, the leaders of europe and even some arab countries, condemning that atrocity and rightly so. >> and we see hamas and other extremists, relishing and praising the atrocity and they are showing the entire world exactly who they are. and between those two camps is the palestinian authority, led by president abbas, who seems to with one word condemn and other word, justify, depending who in
4:10 am
the palestinian authority is speaking. and i think it's now time for everyone in the international community to be saying clearly to the palestinian leadership, get off the fence. it's time that you broke up broke your political pact with hamas, time you dissociated yourself from these extremists and time you move into the mainstream of humanity and total and utter condemnation for this sort of atrocity. >> the prime minister using words to the effect of we will get even. that sounds provocative. now was that taken out of context? is that a poor translation? or is that what he said? and if so, how does that help the situation? >> it's important to be said, we will get the terrorists, the terrorists will not have immunity. we will find them, we will neutralize them. the ones we can put in jail, we'll put in jail. that's part of protecting the israeli public. hamas celebrated yesterday's
4:11 am
atrocity. it's difficult for an american audience to understand that that's possible. but it's true. the pictures are there. they said publicly that they praise the brutal murder of those rabbis in their morning prayers yesterday. and it shows us, i think what they really are. what they're about. >> so of course, we have do act to protect our people from what is ultimately a very real threat. >> this has always been a conflict that was outwardly political but obviously had cultural and religious undertones of this at the very least. now it seems that the religious aspect is at the forefront. do you think that religious leaders may need to come above the political leaders on the islamic and the jewish side, to broker peace here? is it time for that? >> i want to see the peace process move forward. israel wants to see peace with our neighbors. we want to see two states for
4:12 am
two peoples, that's the policy of prime minister netenyahu. but it has to be understood that these extremists are the most violent enemies of peace. they oppose peace. so ultimately neutralizing the threat that they pose and for mainstream palestinian leadership, to finally cut their ties with these groups to dissociate themselves from these groups, to condemn these groups, that's crucial for moving the peace process forward. >> but if it is more religious now in terms of the aspect of where these attacks are, if it wasn't an accident, if it was planned to be in a synagogue, obviously wasn't an accident, is it time for this to become more outwardly religious in terms of having religious leaders, not just political leaders, would you be open to that? >> we're open to peace. we're open to dialogue. we want to see a jerusalem where people of all faiths and of all ethnic communities, can feel comfortable and secure. and practice their religion in freedom. the trouble is you see the exploitation of religious belief
4:13 am
by these fanatics. i don't think they represent most muslims, i don't think they represent most palestinians. but the problem is, that they have set the agenda. and therefore it's incumbent upon mainstream palestinian leadership. on people who claim to be moderate and want peace, they have to publicly dissociate themselves from these people. we want to have peace, we want to have a palestinian partner that wants that as well. but it's crucial that the palestinian partner doesn't have a foot in the camp of the terrorists, of the murderers, you cannot, if and but about this sort of atrocity. you have to be absolute and crystal clear in your condemnation and we're still waiting for that. >> mr. regev, thank you very much, always good to have your perspective on "new day," thank you, sir. we'll be following that story and a lot of other headlines in the news. let's update you on the headlines, republicans vow that keystone will make a comeback.
4:14 am
that's after senate democrats shot down legislation tuesday. to build the controversial keystone pipeline. by a single vote. the move, a huge blow to louisiana senator mary landrieu, who was betting on the measure to pass to help in her re-election bid. let's get to senior washington correspondent, our joe johns live with the latest. >> well when you look at the vote, in context, it was very important for one louisiana senator, in a tough run-off race. to try to save her job. but in the big picture, this is a glimpse of things to come, both here at the white house and on capitol hill. the white house has sent strong signals, the president did not like this bill. he would consider vetoing it. but it was pushed through nonetheless. and what's also clear, is that the incoming soon-to-be senate majority lead, he mitch mcconnell is planning on bringing keystone xl back as an issue on capitol hill. listen. >> well unfortunately we came up
4:15 am
one vote short on the keystone pipeline today. i wanted to make two obviouses, number one, i want to congratulate senator hoban for his extraordinary good work. and number two, to let everyone know this will be an early item on the agenda in the next congress. and i'm very confident that senator hoban's bill will succeed. and we'll be able to get it down to the president. >> senator mary landrieu of louisiana had predicted that the keystone would pass the senate. she was wrong. democrats did not come to her rescue on that. so the question remains, what that means for her run-off in early december in louisiana. michaela, back to you. >> big questions about that, joe, thanks so much. ukraine may be edging closer to all-out war with russian-backed fighters, the new nato chief is warning russia to stop the build-up along the eastern ukraine border. he said it's escalating tensions and will lead to more bloodshed.
4:16 am
germany's foreign minister shuttling between kiev and moscow trying to convince russians to deescalate the crisis. >> hannah graham was the victim of homicidal violence. according to the richmond, virginia medical examiner. the body of the 18-year-old university of virginia student was found near charlottesville after a months-long search. the exact cause of her death is still not known. meanwhile, jesse matthew, who is accused of abducting graham with intent to defile, could face additional charges in that case. a new study out by the american heart association finds transfats may cause memory loss. experts say it's likely because the artificial fats penetrate every cell in the body, disrupting basic cell functions, they say the only way to reverse the impact of trans-fat is to eat right, drink lots of water and exercise. that old scam. >> those pancakes looked really good. >> are you going to reconsider the doughnut friday, mr. cuomo?
4:17 am
>> no, and here's why i won't. i think it's good that the transfats hurt your memory. you don't remember you ate the bad things in the first place. you don't feel as badly about it. you know then you don't do the guilt eating the next meal. >> a little extra working out. when you have a bad meal, you go, oh, the day's shot. you know what i mean. >> start from scratch tomorrow. >> let's head to the red lobster. talking about ferguson, missouri, helping this community heal, we will talk to a member of the new racially diverse commission just appointed, sworn in yesterday by the governor of missouri to assess conditions and get ferguson to move forward. and the drum beat continues -- another woman has come forward accusing bill cosby of rape. you will hear from a prosecutor, we're going to have a little different take on this who said he heard these accusations and he says he wishes he was able to arrest cosby almost ten years ago. so why didn't he? hear from him directly.

you're watching "new day," missouri governor jay nixon has sworn in members of the newly formed ferguson commission. they want 0 make recommendations to address the social and economic conditions in the community. in the wake of the fatal shooting over the summer of the unarmed teenager michael brown. keep in mind still waiting on the grand jury's decision not yet decided whether or not they want to indict the police officer who shot and killed him,
4:22 am
police officer darren wilson. local police have begun prepping alongside the national guard for expected protests. so let's talk about the bigger pirgt. talk about the commission and the latest here is committee member and president of the fraternal order of police sergeant kevin allbrand. sergeant, good morning. >> good morning. >> you are the only police officer on the commission, i'm glad to get a chance to talk to you this morning. let me just begin with the notion critics are saying this is all optics, this is a pr move to form this commission, you can't bring about any actual tangible change. i'd love for you to respond to that. >> this commission is very diverse. there are very smart and impassioned people on this commission. and it was telling that there were several, over a dozen state legislators at the swearing in yesterday and i really think that they will take some of
4:23 am
these recommendations to heart. >> let's talk some specifics. st. louis county, 60 police departments, you represent all 60, given your knowledge of policing and training. what recommendations do you foresee giving in the wake of what we saw happening in ferguson. >> i think that 60 police departments are way too many for st. louis county. some of these officers are making barely above minimum wage. the myriad of training and pay needs to be brought closer together, i think that some sort of consolidation would bring a better paid, better trained higher quality police officer across the whole region. >> in covering ferguson for those many weeks. i heard a lot from different police officers across the country that the issue is training. why is that and how do we fix it? >> i think if we had maybe possibly fewer police departments and that's a decision that each municipality is going to have to make on
4:24 am
their own, we can really work under the same guidelines. the guidelines run the gamut when you have 60 different police departments. >> what about what we know as far as what's happening, community members, i'm sure people such as yourself for different reasons, waiting on pins and needles waiting to see how the grand jury ultimately decides with regard to the officer's fate. in terms of law enforcement, the state of emergency, getting national guard troops ready. i'm sure you're privy to those plans if and when protests break out. what can you share? how are people ready? >> well it only makes sense to be prepared for the worst. if the worst did happen and we were not prepared, that would be horrific. i think there's a little too much hysteria going on of calling up the national guard. the national guard will be used as security positions for police departments, they will not be on the front line. i think we've seen in the past month -- >> you can understand those
4:25 am

peaceful protesters, we know there are agitators that are here, that the decision will make no difference to them and they're here just to create trouble. and we will deal with them. >> what's your message to them this morning, final question. >> peacefully protest, if do you break the law, we will arrest you. >> sergeant kevin allbrand, fraternal order of police, on the ferguson commission. appreciate you taking the time with me this morning. another woman has accused bill cosby of rape. so why weren't cases made, was it just because women didn't come forward in time? not necessarily. we have a proper who says he wanted to arrest cosby a decade ago. he will tell you himself why he couldn't, or why he didn't. he's coming up next. also for all the controversy about who can get married, one thing's clear, mass murderers can. even while in prison and you may pay for it. why was charles manson granted a

7:30 on the nose, let's look at the headlines. the city of buffalo is buried under six feet of snow this morning. look at it. five people have died. the national guard has been called in. a 100-mile stretch of the new york state thruway has been closed down. the national weather service says the all-time record for snowfall in a 24-hour period is 76 inches in the u.s., and that
4:31 am
mark may have been shattered by this storm. indra tells us, there's more to come. israel has promised harsh retaliation for a deadly attack on a jerusalem synagogue. and are demolishing the homes of the two palestinian attackers. this appears to be a first step. a fifth victim in a synagogue attack, an israeli police officer has died from his wounds. four rabbis were killed when the two assailants broke in, wielding meat cleavers, knives and a gun. new details about the looming immigration fight between congressional republicans and our president. a senior house republican floated a plan that essentially would allow lawmakers to pass a spending bill next month. but then allow them to go back later and strip out any money allocated for president obama's immigration plan. an update for you on comedian tracy morgan. he is still struggling nearly six months after that deadly car accident. his attorney says the actor suffered a serious brain injury in the crash on the new jersey turnpike. that attorney says he may never
4:32 am
again be the tracy morgan he once was. morgan has since filed a lawsuit against walmart after a truck driver crashed into his vehicle, critically injuring him, killing another passenger. a fellow comedian. we brought you the news here. it's disturbing to hear that he's going to be dealing with this for some time, chris. >> it's really terrible news. let's hope he makes the recovery. there's another story we're following. two more women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault by bill could bey. one is janice dickinson. doubts have been raised by some of the accounts because women didn't come forward at the time. but this isn't true in all cases. a local prosecutor had a shot at cosby in 2005, he declined to file charges at that time. the prosecutor is now saying he is disappointed he wasn't able to arrest mr. cosby and he joins us now with his take on the situation. his name is bruce castor. the former montgomery county prosecutor and now the
4:33 am
montgomery county commissioner. let's go back to 2005. the woman's name was andrea constan. she wound up suing civilly and settling the case. what was brought to you and what did you make of the allegations? >> back then the desire on our part to move forward was pretty strong. we had a, a woman who but all outward appearances, was credible. had good job, had come to our county and had made these allegations that she had been sexually molested by cosby. the problem with the case is that she waited a year until she told police about it. she told the police about it in her native canada, up in ontario. we're used to seeing delays in reporting by children, because it's a natural fear that children have of adults
4:34 am
retaliating against them and what-not. we usually don't see that with adults. and it's not just the courtroom problem of why did it take so long and the reverse, you don't get the prompt complaint instruction that we prosecutors like to get. but there's the additional problem that there's no corroboration. i had a theory that cosby had drugged the woman, using something to make her sleepy and to make her defenseless or unable to recall what happened. but because of the delay, i couldn't check her blood to see if there was any metabolytes of that drug in her. i couldn't check urine to look for metabolytes, even though time had gone by and it had gotten out of the blood. a lot of people don't know, we can also check hair and fingernails for weeks to see if it had grown through that cycle. but when a year goes by, you don't have any of that
4:35 am
opportunity for corroboration. >> so further complicating facts are, you don't have, you don't have those pieces of information fresh in order to get a search warrant to look for things that are of value in cosby's house. so it made the case very difficult. >> so time was a killer. however, what about credibility? did you think that this woman was telling you the truth? did you think at the time, based on what you understood of the circumstances that bill cosby was guilty? >> i thought she was telling the truth. i didn't think there was enough evidence based on her statements alone to convict him beyond a reasonable doubt. so you know, i hate to parse words, but we lawyers do that, as you know. and did i think he probably did something inappropriate? yes. did i think that i could prove beyond a reasonable doubt based on available credible and admissible evidence? no, i didn't. and i worded my opinion that way. >> you said when you talk about
4:36 am
the situation, you wished you could have arrested mr. cosby. what brought up those feelings in you? >> well, mine anybody who is involved in law enforcement, i was for decades, you get a gut instinct about whether somebody is bad or did something bad. you get a gut instinct about whether somebody is telling you the truth and was a victim. there's that sort of compassionate component, borne out of education of having been in the system for a long time. and then there's the cold, logical component that has to be applied in deciding whether to arrest somebody. and the first one was satisfied. i thought that cosby had done something that was inappropriate. whether it was illegal in the sense that i could prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, became the next question. and i didn't have that last piece. i wanted something else. i had no corroborating evidence.
4:37 am
i couldn't do a search warrant. i couldn't look for hairs, fibers or anything that would corroborate because of the time delay. and i was given some information about other potential victims. but all of them were from far in the past and none of them had resulted in arrests. so i couldn't use any stretch of the imagination, what we call common scheme plan or design. because there was nothing unique about it. >> you're talking a lot, mr. castor, about making the case. you were the prosecutor. but in the investigatory phase, you can take some broad steps even if they don't get you to prosecution. don't you think you had probable cause to bring them in and talk to them about it? >> we did. we did bring them in and talk to them about it. we talked to him, we talked to her. you understand in pennsylvania, the prosecutor can take over any investigation he or she wishes. and at that point, we had taken the case over and were partnered up with the local police.
4:38 am
so we did conduct the interview. >> what did you make of cosby in the interview? >> i thought he was lying. i thought that he was evasive. and i thought that those things would be of value if i had another piece to go forward with remember, the corpus delicti rule means you can prove a crime first before any statements made by a defendant. >> he's not speaking about these allegations, we've never really heard anything other than legal denials. so it's very interesting to hear from someone who got a chance to sit across from him and ask him about a specific incident, how cosby reacted in that. and you say you don't think he came across as credible. why? >> let me back up a little bit, chris. i didn't conduct interview personally. because i didn't want to end up being a witness in the case, i was the prosecutor. >> you had your assistants do it
4:39 am
and you got to read the testimony of it. what did you think? >> i thought he was evasive. he was setting up the defense that she was there of her own volition and that nothing had happened. but that if anything had happened, now granted, this is ten years ago and i haven't read that statement in all that time, but he was setting up if anything had gone on, it was consensual. but i didn't think he was truthful about that. i was weighing the scales of justice, and which scales coy prove not necessarily what i could then say that he, he said that was a lie. that of course is valuable, if can you prove the first part. >> i totally get the frustration that you're laying out in terms of the decisions had you to make. but again it's very interesting to hear from somebody who had any exposure to bill cosby's responses to the allegations about how he came across and why. you're saying he gave you the
4:40 am
even/if. nothing happened and even if something did happen, it was all consensual. that will be interesting for people to hear. >> chris, that's my recollection after all these years, until a couple of days ago, i never thought i would see this case again. which points to another interesting fact we can take from this. back then we had the internet and coy read a newspaper accounts throughout the world on this case. but we didn't have like twitter or facebook or if we did, they were in their infancy and the whole world didn't learn about things instantaneously. one of the problems that we see over and over again in sexual assault cases is women who are afraid to come forward, they think they won't be believed. they think that they're the only one this happened to. and the fact that we have now, at least this case to show women that when it's proliferated out there, other people will come to back you up. might help news future cases, convince women to come forward and report even when slen sleb rits are involved. so we can get the information
4:41 am
and the corroborating evidence right when it happens. >> and when they do come forward, they have to treated the right way. mr. castor, thank you very much. we know that negotiating are working to hammer out a deal with iran as the deadline approaches. will the country resist the tough restrictions on its nuclear program? we'll take you live to iran for the latest.

4:43 am
4:44 am
4:45 am
welcome back to new day, we have secretary of state john kerry meeting with saudi and french foreign ministers in paris today over curbing iran's nuclear ambitions. but listen, time is of the essence, this deadline on a nuclear deal is looming. western powers still uncertain whether or not iran will accept the tougher restrictions on its nuclear program. but here's the thing, if a deal is signed, restrictive sanctions could be loosened. the question is will negotiators be able to sign a deal by next monday. reza is live for us from tehran.
4:46 am
the simple question -- where do the talks stand right now? >> thoor in the final stage this is the final round, brooke. but no outcome. no final agreement and we should point out that during these 12 months, these two sides have done a very effective job in keeping the talks secret. it's very unlikely we're going to get any information about the final agreement until an official announcement is made. but all sides representatives from iran and the p-5 plus one are in vienna. the next five days, they have a shot at making history. iran and washington and the western powers have a real good opportunity to improve relations, normalize relations and drastically change the geopolitical complexion of the middle east if there's a deal and if there is no deal, things will pretty much stay the same and the nuclear standoff will drag on. it all depends what happens in the next five days. a lot at stake. being people here in iran eager to see what happens.
4:47 am
brooke? >> i mean you mention of course that a lot of the discussions behind closed door, super-secret. what do we as far as compromise, where is iran willing to give? >> iran's position is they're prepared to make concessions, they're prepared to compromise if they get a fair deal in return. they argue that they've already made substantial concessions. they've abided by the terms of the interim deal for the past 12 months. they've agreed for now not to enrich uranium past that 5% mark. agreed to stop advancements in their heavy water facility in iraq. and they've also agreed to increase inspections. you get the sense that they have room for wiggle room. that they're willing to make more concessions, perhaps reduce the center of centrifuges. however, this is important, they point out that they're not desperate. that they're not going to sign a deal if any cause. they believe it's their right to have a peaceful nuclear program based on international law. like anyone else and they're not going to back down to
4:48 am
unreasonable demands. like any good deal, you have to give something substantial to get something in return. we'll see if that happens. and another important point is, this deal has to be one with which both sides, president barack obama and president hassan rouhani can go back home and declare themselves a victor. if they don't, there's going to be a political price to pay. so it's complicated, lots of moving parts, a lot at stake, we'll see what happens on monday. >> top of mind for secretary kerry, meeting with saudi and french foreign ministers before he gets to vienna late they are week. thank you so much. now it's not easy to admit, i'll tell you this -- >> something is not easy for to you admit? what? >> i might as well just tell you, don't tell anybody else. it took me years to get my wife to marry me. >> here's my shocked face. >> if you're a masked murderer, everybody seems to want to marry you, it's a little bit of an
4:49 am
exaggeration. sometimes women are literally fighting to get into prison to marry mass murderers. we told you about the 26-year-old who is just giddy about marrying charles manson. this happens often enough that it is studied by experts. >> it's a thing. >> is it just a cry for help? or are we missing something? we will give you the science on it, coming up. , but thank you. thank you mom for protecting my future. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.

5:05 am
part of the city. now the lake effect in north buffalo. now we are getting hit. fortunately in those other areas of the city outside buffalo, we haven't had that incredible snowfall you have been reporting. >> i was talking to them a while ago and he was saying we are showing you the pictures and they couldn't traverse the mounds of snow. what do you want people to know those who are likely stuck in their homes. what is your message to them? >> my message is to stay at home. if there is an emergency situation, call 911. nonemergency call 311. our firefighters and police officers have been acting
5:06 am
heroically. firefighters have been literally going-over mounts of snow to get people out of cars and homes with emergency situations. they have the gurneys, carrying gurneys with people and firefighters and a nurse delivered a baby in one of the firehouses. absolutely incredible. somebody joked that the name of the baby should have been stormy. the family didn't go with that name -- >> i can't imagine why. >> the firefighters have been tremendo tremendous. >> i'm sure they want this to be in the past. finally to you, i believe you are a native new yorker and as we talk about the national weather service, this could amount to being the most snow ever in a 24-hour period. have you experienced anything

progress with the community. the formation of this commission. what do you believe the mandate is and what is your hope? let's start with you. >> thank you very much for having us on this morning to talk about what we single a very positive move in our community. the establishment has been commissioned by the government and an opportunity to think long and hard about the ways we can develop a stronger, fairer future for our community together. this group of folks will focus on specific recommendations and policies and solutions we can implement to build a better region who is more fair for all of the citizens. >> that's a great aspiration, but you are stuck in the moment. how bad is it in terms of them pulling out in greater st. louis because of fears of what my happen when the grand jury decision is announced.
5:19 am
how real is that and how do you deal with it as a community? >> our community is focused on positive change. essential we have the tensions and emotions of the moment and those are serious and folks are approaching that and thinking creatively and the level of engagement where folks want to have the opportunity to peacefully express their views and express them vigorous low as well as in a safeway. this is an opportunity for the community to come together. to listen carefully to stakeholders of all views. with the diverse thought process that will lead us to a chance to have a stronger and fairer community. >> there has been a vacuum of leadership and you now by designation will represent leadership in that community hopefully that winds up being a good thing. you know in this last set of
5:20 am
protests that went on, it was clergy. men and women were involved with different churches that were helping keep the peace as well as anybody if not more. how concerned are you about what may happen? >> quite frankly i have to say number one appropriately they were engaged in the escalation and protest lines. appropriately. patriotic protest. we will likely see that again as folks have been organizing and providing support. sanctuary space in the days ahead. i'm encouraged by the amount of preparation that police protesters and organizers had for this next potential flash point. i am encouraged by the elected officials and others have been thoughtful about how they would
5:21 am
communicate with one another and how they communicate across the protest lines to make sure that folks who desire to express the first amendment right have the opportunity to do so safely. those are the signs that lead to and provide hope for the work together as a police officer and protesters and tell us makers are sitting around the table will have the opportunity to exercise and build upon the work of the last and most significantly by talking to one another. >> makes the response to the immediate reaction, whatever happens more important. that would be the base in which you can build. let me ask you something. any thought about the commission going to the prosecutor's office saying you need to have a plan in place for how you are going to have work get out or no
5:22 am
indictment. the anticipation is toxifying the environment. any thought of a leadership role. it's to focus on long-term issues. the serious issues that have been exposed by the tragedy in ferguson. we focus on law enforcement practices over the long-term and policing. job opportunities and housing. issues that are serious and very long-term tell us issues. as the commission comes together. we will hear from citizens in all of those and realize addressing these causes will make the opportunity to improve st. louis as a stronger, fairer place real in the future. >> it's a great goal and it's needed, but take opportunity where you find it. there has been an absence of it and we are hoping you make the most of it. the recent developments of
5:23 am
preparedness for events, the state of emergency to release access to the national guard. do you think it has been handled the right way? >> quite frankly some of these things are not within the work of the commission. i think there has been a lot of inappropriate action with frontline responsibility. we had discussions between police and protesters who will be on the frontlines. i think those are the spaces where we need the lines of communication open. i'm encouraged by the dialogue going on there and the willingness of the parties with those conversations that serve in the commission. they have been building the relationship we are going to need both to make the appropriate recommendations and to implement with the long-term
5:24 am
so we have a better day for us going forward. >> thank you very much. the commission signals us and a hope for good positive change and that's what's needed in the community. good luck with your work. >> thank you. coming up, we have to go to washington. a set back for supporters with the keystone pipeline, but the controversial prozekt is by no means dead. we will talk about that and talk immigration and the secret service here, sharing that hearing. stay with me.
5:25 am
5:26 am
5:27 am
5:28 am
you are watching a new day. there is a lot to talk about with this congressman from virginia. the possibility of the president of the united states signing this into executive order here at the end of the year and how this will fall with republicans now. of course with the new congress they will hold the vote in the
5:29 am
upper and lower chambers. joining me now, the chairman of the house judiciary. congressman, thanks for joining me. >> good to be with you and your viewers. >> you have a powerful opinion piece yesterday. your lead line was the president is poised specifically on immigration to announce one of the biggest executive moves in american history. my colleagues will take inventory of the tools according to congress such as the power of the purse and the authority to write legislation to stop the president's unconstitutional actions from being implemented. when you say considering measures, can you be specific. what measures are you considering? are. >> there many that are under consideration and since they are under consideration and the president has not acted and we hope he will see the wisdom of not making this power grab, i
5:30 am
want to be careful about that. as the piece said, the president can be centered and sued by the congress and there a host of other things. with the american people, they spoke loud and clear in november. the numbers on immigration have been falling since his very poorly-handled episode with regard to the border surge. this is going to make it worse. finally it will make it worse to deal with the new senate and house. >> i understand your frustration and i know a lot of our viewers agree with you, but you mentioned censure. this happened with republicans as well. why propose censure? we are even hearing impeachment. isn't that taking it too far? >> no decisions have been made. when he tries to compare this to
5:31 am
what republican presidents have done. this is 50 times what others have done and they have done it in the aftermath of a crisis or anothers another factor. two wrongs don't make a right. this is a huge step. we have not found that involved anywhere more than tens of thousands of people and not five or six or however many million people that the president is attempting to take here. it's never been tested in court. again, we should take nothing off the table, but by the same token we are not saying we are going to do anything in particular. we are outlining the list of things that can be done if the president acts. >> let me move along to the pipeline vote and we know it failed by one vote. what happened? >> again, here i think you have
5:32 am
a situation where 14 democratic senators did hear the american people in the election returns. this is supported by a substantial majority of the people and the fact that all 45 republicans and 14 democrats voted for this. it bodes well. this means that in a new senate some of the democrats who voted against it will be gone. it is highly likely that this is passed by the house and it will be headed to the president's desk i hope early in a new congress. >> it could be headed to his desk and he could opt for a veto. do you think that there is a sliver of a possibility that a deal could be made? >> i hope so. again, the president needs to work with the congress on all of these issues on immigration and on energy production and his -- again with the immigration matter taking his pen and phone and attempting to act unilaterally is a mistake.
5:33 am
he should put the pressure and the responsibility where it should lie with regard to all of these issues. congress has the authority to write the laws and he should be putting the focus there and not on his pen and cell phone. >> you, sir, as we mentioned the chair of the house committee. this hearing happening today with the acting director of the secret service. they will be speaking in the wake of multiple breeches. what are you hoping to hear from him? >> here we want to make sure the president of the united states and those who work around him is being protected. we has personality responsibilities to carry out. we will have a public hearing which the nation can tune in in about an hour and hear that, but we will also go into a closed session to drill deeper to what we don't want the next fence jumper or someone who means harm
5:34 am
to hear the most important things to restore morale and leadership and make sure the technology they have is being used. one of the saddest parts is you had a secret service agent on his cell phone and left his other radio device in the car. people on the other side of the fence, police saw him go over the fence and he didn't hear it. the dog didn't get focused on the person who had intruded because the secret service agent was not focused. there major problems that need to be addressed and that happened to someone who is armed and not properly vetted. there are problems that need to be fixed. it's important for the safety of the people in the white house and most importantly the president of the united states. >> thank you so much for joining us. we will be tuning in to public sections. thank you so much for joining us here on new day.
5:35 am
now to you. >> we know mother nature is not being kind to folks in buffalo. six feet of snow burying the city. the national guard has been called in and five deaths are being blamed on the storm. the death toll rising on the attack on a synagogue. a fifth victim israeli police officer died from his wounds. four rabbis were murdered in the attack by two palestinian men. a shocking defeat. denna senate democrats shot down the pipeline bill. mary landrieu was counting on it passing to up her chances. >> another person coming forward about bill cosby. janice dickinson speaking of the night he drugged and raped her. five federal safety regulators are calling for a nationwide recall of vehicles with air bags
5:36 am
that could potentially explode. they have been linked to at least five deaths. be sure to visit new day for the latest. brooke? >> thank you very much. the new cnn film called ivory tower explores the rising costs of college tuition and student debt. people stuck with this for years and years. look at the more affordable college alternatives. >> you watched and you waited and you voted. today cnn's new hero of the year is here. you will get to meet him coming up. i'm angela, and i quit smoking with chantix. people who know me, to this day they say, "i never thought you would quit."
5:37 am
you know, i really didn't either but chantix helped me do it. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it gave me the power to overcome the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i'm a nonsmoker; that feels amazing. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
5:38 am
in the country. we operate just like a city, and that takes a lot of energy. we use natural gas throughout the airport - for heating the entire terminal, generating electricity on-site, and fueling hundreds of vehicles. we're very focused on reducing our environmental impact. and natural gas is a big part of that commitment.
5:39 am
5:40 am
>> per welcome back. we have a news flash. college, it ain't cheap and it's worth it, right? it's getting more controversial whether to go based on what it costs and you can get that investment. christine told me every word. >> fantastic. it really asks these questions. is the traditional four-year degree ripe for disruption? it is. huge demand for coders. you don't need a four-year degree to do that. i want to tell you about the students who get these skills at a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. >> we are excited to present our new travel app. >> it's graduation day, the end of a 19-week program who turned these students into one of the hottest commodities.
5:41 am
coders. >> they will be presenting ideas they filmed. >> it was the four-year degree. a lot of people said i need something more. a general studies four years is not going to give you an edge in this tech-based economy. >> if you are going college to get a job, the majority wished that attended a different program or wish they had an additional skill set. >> the traditional four-year system, i value the social experiences i had there -- >> you didn't say academic. >> i felt unprepared by it. the things we pack into 19 weeks are things you could learn at two to four years at university. >> do you think this is a value? >> people who graduate make 90 k or so? i think that's worth it.
5:42 am
>> millennials account for 40% of the nation's unemployed. specific programs are becoming popular alternatives and add ones to higher education. >> the investment of time and money. we are talking about a cohort that invested a lot of money in the education. we focus on outcomes and students being able to find careers when they finish this. it's very, very clear when you finish this program, the goal is to be edging the developer. we get you to that point and it's clear what should you do next and how to get there. >> the majority of them are unemployed. i don't know anyone without any debt, personally. >> if i graduated with a degree at the university, i wouldn't know any web development. >> you wanted to focus in on this. >> this is what i want to do. why waste my time. a degree is like a high school
5:43 am
diploma. a portfolio means more. if i can show them i can do this, that will land me a job. >> a degree is a high school diploma. a portfolio portfoliors a lot of those people started without knowing anything and able to learn the language along the way. they were teaching me the basics. it's a different way of thinking. this is the thinking that is really in demand. $12,000. there is not a job guaranteed on the end. they are getting jobs and that helps them pay off a four-year liberal arts degree. a lot of them went to college and couldn't get a job. they want to work for google or facebook or twitter or tumblr. they will figure out how to do it. >> the guarantee is there is a
5:44 am
supply of jobs for the skills. that's not so true with a lot of degrees. >> i talked to google ceo and the chairman of the tech companies. i can hire as many of these people. >> you win. this is important enough. i have to watch it. when can we watch it? the premier of the ivory tower is at 9:00 eastern at cnn eastern tomorrow. >> i love this. in the human factor, we meet a rapper setting her sights on the fact that she is seeing things in a whole new way. sanjay gupta. >> from this day forward -- >> my name is lyric and my stage name is lyric the queen. >> the patch on her eye is her trademark. when she first auditions for the x factor, few people know what
5:45 am
is behind it. >> i'm totally blind. >> she has a disorder of the cornea that causes it to bulge. being behind never derailed her career. darkness literal and emotional are crippling emotionally. all that may change. she will undergo a procedure she hopes will restore her vision. >> i didn't feel anything. >> it went perfect. >> this is crazy. >> i'm looking around like crazy and seeing the cars and the people. >> the surgery was a success. >> this thing i used to be ashamed about and i was depressed and devastated, i made it into my thing and i don't think i'm ready to let that go yet. >> dr. sanjay gupta, cnn.

5:53 am
the dog is right there. it's helping them get through and deal with these things. >> that's amazing. we know each of the ten heroes got $25,000. the hero of the year, it's a windfall. $100,000 you received. process it for a second. what more can you do to talk about the need to do more that allows you to do so much. >> this time last year with the nonprofit, we had $13,000 and we were thinking how we are going to keep going. that's going to allow us to do so much out there. we are going to push for the rabies program and try to reduce the stray dog population. there is about 1,000 afghan kids who die from rabies. something that shouldn't be happening. if we can humanely kill stray
5:54 am
dogs, this will allow us. >> allowing us to celebrate for the rest of the time. >> thank you for your hard work and thank you for getting up early despite lack of sleep to bring your wonderful award here. let you know, please tune in for "cnn heroes," an all-star tribute at 8 p.m. eastern on december seventh. you will be 7changed, moved and inspired. >> a story we will tell about two selfless young women who are giving for the less fortunate in a unique way and thus qualify for the edition.
